Power and Privilege: A Call to Action

We are rarely comfortable talking about difference in our culture. Some believe that with a Black president, a shift towards legalized gay marriage and higher graduation rates for women than men, we have all become equal. Further probing tells us something different. At some point in our lives we all make a choice: do I sit and observe or do I take action?

The Women’s Center is taking action. We seek to move towards a community where inclusion and equity are ingrained in every part of who we are and what we do. Join us at our Series kick off on October 22. See details below.

8:30-10:00 – Hilton Garden Inn - Breakfast workshop for mid-level staff in student focused units.

** This workshop is limited in size and scope.  If you register, you will be notified of your acceptance via email.  This workshop is meant to compliment the keynote addresses, and participants should consider attending both.

Program series cosponsored with the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, Vice President for Student Affairs, Kellogg's Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Medill School of Journalism, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, and Counseling and Psychological Services.
